Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

Well I have started the count down to my holidays today.  I am getting excited now and I can't wait to see some sun and hot weather for a change. 

I have used another of my stamps for this card and the map background stamp is from Indigoblu.



Recipe and Method


1.  Base card is 6 x 6 inches which I have added a piece of gold pearlescent card.
2.  I have stamped the map background using FlitterGlu and then used Mega Flakes, WOW I was really impressed with how it picked up all the detail on the map. I placed this onto the pearlescent card.
3. I stamped the vintage bicycle with FlitterGlu and used Mega Flakes. I cut out the image using Spellbinder circle die.  I inked the topper with Dew Drop Brilliance Cosmic Copper.
4.  I stamped both the sentiments with FlitterGlu and again added Mega Flakes.  I cut them out and placed onto the top and bottom of the card and added 3 Card Candi to finish off.



Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

  10. Great card Linda, you really are having fun with the old flitter glu, I love it too, only prob is! Now my pots got a bit gummed up with it and it's hard to get open, I've had it quite a while and use it a lot, I've tried soaking the lid and scraping the outside of pot but no luck, any tips?
